Ok sooooo I got Togo to a pride March in Lawrence KS while visiting my aunt!!!!! It was amazing soooooo many people being confident and not looking afraid or nervous to be the public about who they are (something that just does not exist on the other side of Kansas where I am from) I even got to join in for a few blocks but not too far though because my aunt broke her ankle and I was there to “help” though I think it was more like she wanted someone to hang out with while her husband was at work we are planning on doing the whole thing next year and hopefully going to take my partner with us too
Hehe that is understandable and I am glad to help show you that being a LGBTQ+ Christian is possible and if you ever want to talk I am doing almost nothing ALL the freaking time (except next week next week I have leadership training) and if our time zones are vastly different I can just respond when I wake up (US central time for me)
Oh he is dEFINITELY NOT an ally. Very conservative. My church is the same, although that comment might become irrelevant soon- my church dissolves on 8/14/22. I'm more confident as an ace person now, but not as much aro. probably because of how I've grown up. However confident I feel about being aroace, the society that I live in breaks that confidence. Ace? I'm perfectly happy with that. But Aro? It's been crazy. Whenever I try to imagine myself in a relationship, I can't see it. I could never. But then society comes and breaks that down. I made myself aroace rings when I was confident about myself. And then I lost the Aro one, so the symbolism is kinda lost. I still have the ace one, though. Of course, my family just thinks I made two rings bc my sister makes jewelry all the time. But the rings helped me feel confident about my identity. Maybe it's stupid, but it's how I feel. I definitely don't want to be in a relationship, but everyone around me says I have to eventually. It's just hard. But thank you for your help in "my journey to self discovery" :)
haha, yea everyone around me is pretty anti-queer. I think(?) I'm the Prespryterian (i speeled that wrong) Church of America. But I could be wrong. But thank you for your words of encouragement. It's nice to know about the other LGBTQIA+ christian community. It's nice to know I'm not alone. But yea, my denomination is dEFINITELY not LGBTQIA+ friendly. I don't have any plans for coming out, and at the moment I don't think its safe for me to. Again, thank you so much. It has helped :D and most of my congregation is... older and super conservative. More adults than kids, at least. I don't think I'm ever gonna come out, just stay in life chilling in the closet

I'm wondering, can you tell me more about some of the signs of demisexuality that relate to you? At this point, I guess my questions would be, for the girlfriends of yours who you'd be down to try stuff with, if you didn't know them and weren't' close to them, how would you feel about trying things out?
